Proud mother Cher breaks down in tears as son Chaz Bono battles his way back into the competition on Dancing with the Stars

There was no prouder mother in the Dancing with the Stars audience tonight than Cher, who finally showed up to watch son Chaz Bono perform.

The 65-year-old singer broke down in tears as she watching Chaz, 40, come out fighting to dance the paso doble with partner Lacey Schwimmer.



The fighter: Chaz came out swinging on Dancing with the Stars tonight


Proud mum: Cher broke down in tears after watching her son perform


Rocky! Chaz and partner Lacey Schwimmer did the Paso Doble to the Rocky theme song

Cher wasn't the only person impressed with her transgender son's performance. The judges gave him straight seven's across the board during music from the movies night.

'In the true spirit of Rocky, no matter how many knocks you take, you keep coming back, you keep fighting and you keep getting stronger', judge Bruno Tonioli said.

Fellow judge Carrie Ann Inaba agreed. 'I'm trying to figure out why I'm crying,' she said. 'It's like, I watch you and somehow you get under my skin and you make me root for you.


The coach: Richard Simmons coaches Chaz and Lacey clad in gold glitter


Good scores: The red-clad couple received three straight 7's


Standing ovation: Cher clapped so hard that she broke her bracelet!

'Your true courage and the way you get out there...I was like, go! Go! Go!'

Chaz's performance certainly benefited from a little coaching from none other than exercise guru Richard Simmons, who said he borrowed his glittering gold onesie 'from the Kardashians!'

If his post-show tweet was any indication, he was as pleased as everyone else at how well he had danced. 'Amazing, Amazing Night!! Thank you so much for supporting me on this journey. #DWTS#, he wrote.


Paso Doble: David Arquette and Kym Johnson steam up the dance floor


Bliss: The actor is happy with a job well done


Moves in all the right places: David bends Kym over backwards


Me Tarzan: the 40-year-old actor swung through the air on DWTS

Like Chaz and Lacey, David Arquette and partner Kym Johnson also danced the Paso Doble, but they chose to do so to the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme song.

The40-year-old actor scored a 23 for his dramatic dance. In true Indiana Jones style, he swung onto the dance floor on a rope.

Naturally, Tonioli loved the actor's moves, citing his 'tight muscles and tight pants' as reasons for an ovation.

His seven-year-old daughter, Coco, ex-wife Courteney Cox, and sister Patricia were all in the audience to cheer him on.


Tony or Tom? Tony Dovolani made a grand entrance as Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible


The tango: Chynna Philips and Tony Dovolani do the tango


Dirty dancing: Tony and Chynna display some steamy moves on the dance floor


Sexy accessory: Tony shows off Chynna's holster garter

Chynna Philips and partner Tony Dovolani tangoed to the theme song from Mission: Impossible in what should have been an impressive dance.

Her 38-year-old partner descended from the ceiling Tom Cruise-style despite having hurt himself during dress rehearsal.

'I wanted to do well for Chynna,' he said simply, though the former Wilson Philips star was the one who seemed to be having an off night.

Inaba's critique: 'I know you absolutely got lost, but...I want to see you come back from this.' Her total score was a 21. 


The best dressed pirate around: Carson Kressley danced to a song from Pirates of the Caribbean


Swordfight! Kressley and his partner Anna Trebunskaya are swashbuckling dancing foes


New tattoo: Carson curries favour with the judges

Fashion expert Carson Kressley was a fan favourite with his hilarious pirate costume and sword fighting dance-off, but the judges had issues with his performance.

The 41-year-old and partner Anna Trebunskaya danced the Viennese Waltz from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.

Judge Len Goodman called the routine: 'Like childbirth - terrible while it's happening, and a joy when it's over. No quality of movement...but it was great fun. If I was at home, I'd be phoning for you.' 

Tonioli was delighted with his own response: 'It's Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Revenge of the Gay Blade!'


Fire! Nancy Grace danced the Paso Doble


Flash Gordon: The song Grace and her partner performed to


Happy? Nancy Grace and partner Tristan MacManus await their results

51-year-old talk show host Nancy Grace felt the judges heat for her Paso Doble to the theme song from Flash Gordon.

She flashed a lot of leg in her black and gold sequined costume, while her partner, Tristan MacManus, vamped it up in a Flash jacket.

Their dance earned them a solid 21, despite Goodman's critique that it 'lacked expression.'


A toy story: Soccer star Hope Solo dressed up as a cowgirl


Sparring partners: Solo and partner Chmerkovskiy argued before dancing the foxtrot


Oh, Bruno: Judge Bruno Tonioli shows his best assets

Soccer star Hope Solo and partner Chmerkovskiy may have argued during dance rehearsal, but their performance of You've Got A Friend from Toy Story was utterly adorable.

The two dressed up as Jesse and Woody from the hit animated film and rightfully earned Inaba's praise of: 'You made me smile the whole way through.'

The other judges agreed, hence their high score of 24.


A bird, a plane: No, it's Rob Kardashian as Clark Kent


Top marks: Rob and partner Cheryl Burke scored a top mark of 24


Family support: Kris and Bruce Jenner cheered on their son from the audience

Rob Karashian made a handsome Clark Kent as he and partner Cheryl Burke danced a dramatic Paso Doble to the theme song from Superman.

Inaba, of course, gave the 24-year-old reality star the highest praise of the evening, saying 'I like the way you move' , praising his 'sensuality' and his 'Superman flavour.'

Mum Kris Jenner and stepdad Bruce were in the audience to watch their son tie Hope Solo with a 24.


The pair to beat: Did Ricki Lake and Derek Hough reclaim the top spot?


Jumping for joy: Lake was so pleased with her results that she leaped into Derek's waiting arms

Show insiders say that Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough are the team to beat, but the 43-year-old talk show host doesn't agree.

She seemed to have problems in rehearsals, saying that she felt a 'tremendous amount of pressure' and expressing her desire to quit.

Even so, when the two danced to the theme song from Psycho, they received a standing ovation - and a 29, the highest score of the night.


Guess the dance: A pink-clad J.R. Martinez danced to the theme song from the Pink Panther


Jazz hands: J.R. shows off his moves


Huh? J.R. and Karina seem displeased with their results

J.R. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff chose to dance to the theme song from the Pink Panther.

The 28-year-old soldier and motivational speaker's hot pink suit, top hat and tie drew almost as much attention as his smooth foxtrot.

Goodman called him 'the best male dancer of the night' while Inaba thought his performance was 'a little flat.' Still, the two had the second highest score of the night with a 26.


Before the show: Ricki and Chynna leave their trailers
